Hosts: Poland and Romania

Languages: English

Where: room 15

Description:

The side event is co-organized by Poland and Romania in cooperation with the ICRC. The main objective is to present and discuss added value, best practices and examples of national reports on implementation of IHL. Some countries on a voluntary basis prepare such reports, other are willing to start. The side event will serve as a platform for an exchange of experiences in this field.

Discussion will cover such issues as: aims, advantages and challenges of reporting, collecting data, scope of reports and coordination among national stakeholders, including the role of National Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies in the drafting. Presentation of lessons learned from different perspectives by representatives of Europe, Africa, Asia and Latin America regions would substantially contribute to discussions on the proposals for strengthening compliance with IHL.
